Meet Integrated Geomancy: Feng Shui for Facility Siting

When you hear Feng Shui, what immediately comes to mind - Arranging your couch just-so? Maybe even folding the socks in that dresser drawer the way Marie Kondo demanded of you? Better yet, do you think of the optimal placement of Oil and Gas assets based on their surroundings?


Unless you are familiar with Integrated Geomancy, that may not be the first place your mind wanders...now.


With this #MeetTheProduct post, we would like to expose you to some of the awe-inspiring solutions our company creates in-house. One such product is an application for Full Field Optimization of Oil and Gas assets, aptly named Integrated Geomancy.


Learn more about Integrated Geomancy in the Solutions section.



ArcGIS Solution for Full Field Optimization


Available as an ArcGIS Desktop Add-In and ArcGIS Pro toolbox, this application provides a comprehensive and holistic methodology for full integration and interaction between environmental, economic, construction, and reclamation factors involved in field development. The Geomancy Decision Engine, the model on which this solution is built, supports optimum design by balancing these factors in conjunction with overarching goals and constraints, allowing for customizable and all-inclusive results.


Speaking of results, Integrated Geomancy is used for the planning and siting of Pipeline Gathering Systems, Transmission Pipelines, Access Roads, Well Pads, and Central Processing Facilities based on elevation, existing infrastructure, and constraints...Now does Feng Shui ring a bell?


Feng Shui Features

Areas where construction is and is not recommended (i.e., Constructability), as well as what data impacts the verdict (i.e., Contribution).

Integrated Geomancy acts as a Full Field Optimization toolkit and Knowledge Management system all-in-one. Operating based on a Project and Scenario framework - where the Project represents the overarching context and each subsequent Scenario consists of Project data to be analyzed individually as "What-If" instances - the toolkit maintains all input data and results within its own specialized file structure and naming conventions. It ensures you know the location of every piece of information, allowing for easily sharing results or even quickly reproducing analyses based on settings stored within the Project.


The Geomancy Decision Engine allows for complete customization of a Project, inputting as much data to serve as constraints, as desired. This data can be anything from Depth Surfaces and Land Cover to datasets representing Anthropogenic and No-Go areas. It is a perfect case of "Include all the things!"...even though, technically, only a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is required.


Constraints are then employed to determine Constructability, or the
